Volume 57.2- Summer 2014


This issue looks ahead to the forthcoming Scholarly Edition of Lucy Gayheart, Cather's 1935 novel with essays from David Porter, Jane Dressler, and the late Merrill Skaggs. Andrew Jewell and Marilee Lindemann discuss last year's publication of The Selected Letters of Willa Cather and the impact that volume has had on Cather studies. Francis Murphy reports from the Old Burying Ground in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, where changes were made to Cather's and Lewis's grave markers in 2013. Finally, we're treated to Andrew Ek's poem "The Year My Sister Went East."
